I GOT SHOOSHED DURING "DESPERADO": An enterprising reporter at the Wisconsin State Journal looks into one of those great mysteries of pop culture--why The Eagles' "Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975" is the best-selling album of all time.

The RIAA list of the Top 100 best-selling albums is here, and more interesting than the ones at the top of the list are some of those toward the bottom. For instance, sharing real estate in the 5-million units sold area with albums like Paul Simon's "Graceland," The Beatles' "Revolver," and Bob Dylan's greatest hits collections are albums by Wilson Phillips, The Spin Doctors, and C+C Music Factory.
